Glad you noticed, DR71! Sorry about that--and if I was closer to you geographically, would've been able to help you out as my sons, having never seen the boys, have in fact seen more of the "post-DEAD" bands (incl Ratdog, Phil & Friends, the DEAD) than I have, and this would have made a nice Christmas present for a couple of them...

It's funny that they spent so much time with the DEAD growing up, via my enforced musical theme to our own family life, that it rubbed off to the degree that they have pursued the various incarnations of the band that have been available in the Southwest over the past 10 yrs...

Along the lines of the question the other day about how many of us have taken our parents to shows (which in my case, ain't gonna work out what with them having "joined" Jerry some yrs ago [my mom and he both shared a love for Camels!]), how many of you have come to find your children coming back from shows the past few yrs that you recognize they wouldn't have gone to if it hadn't been for your "musical education efforts" during their younger days?

Or, is this request simply going to remind me that I am one of the oldest old farts around here?

Hmmm, just to ask, how many Forumites have grown kids over 20, if you don't mind the personal question?

[hope this isn't viewed as a 'hijack' since it is related to DR's original post...]

Got one 24, one 21, and a third younger one still at home. They tolerate the Dead as just one more of Dad's eccentricities. The eldest plays in death metal bands and says he wouldn't dare park his car near a basement show with a stealie bumper sticker on it. The other is more eclectic. :-)

Well, you got me by a few, OH...but that's okay--I make up for my chronological lack in my "physically worn out physique" so that I am well into my 80s in terms of joint loss, etc. I take more meds than the grand ma I used to mock in my youth, and she was 80!

Hey now---I may have you beat on the drugs, as well---at least the prescribed ones (lol)

Being born in '51 was cool because of the everpresent emerging "rock and roll" scene. I remember pretty well the '50s, musically---especially, the "wonderful" (gag) Pat Boone rendition of "Tootee Fruitie" and other "tamer" and "less-dangerous" white-bread versions of the real deal black I think Elvis changed a lot of perceptions, bridging the gap in many ways.

Yes; it was cool to be contemporaneously listening to the music of both the '50s and (primarily) the '60s.

OK 1951 wasn't so good a year to pitch to Bobby Thompson. Maybe he shouldn't have worn #13. It was, however, a good year to be born.

"one of" but not THE OLDEST

And speaking of children, some of you already know that I have two. My son, who is the youngest is 27. My daughter is 32. Her son is almost 11. My son listens to almost as much GD as I do. My daughter, not so much. The grandson listens to some, but wears his "Deady Bear" Converse most all the time.

My 25 year olds' tastes have definitely gone in their own direction, but I like to think they have been at least influenced by the old man's obsession. One of his fave's, Tool, frightened me at first, but when I really gave an honest listen, I found them to be very intelligent and talented musicians not following any trend or fashion. Sound familiar? He also has developed a taste for classical music and jazz (the real deal stuff, not "smooth"), which I do take full credit for. He has occasionally listened to the boys with me more recently (when home on leave) and expressed some interest. That particular seed may yet bear fruit.

Down right heart warming! I'll never forget my oldest coming back from seeing White Stripes in 2001, and telling me "Dad!!! It was like listening to CREAM!" (no doubt due to the two of them being such a surprise--and the intensity of Jack White, but also the energy of the show and the feeling he and his friends had stumbled on something really big but not well known at the time).

And I've also managed to impart a regional musical influence as well (he's been AZ his whole life). The Dropkick Murphys have been a favorite of his for years as well, which he almost always listens to with his Sox hat on. The kid's got potential.

My two are 11 and 9...going on 21. Does that count??

Neither of my kids are into the Dead, athough they are developing a diverse interest in music. My 9YO is into the current bubble gum stuff, i.e. Miley Cyrus, Jonas Brothers etc. But she is also developing an interest in The Jackson 5 and other Motown stuff!!!! My 11Yo , who has been to see Crosby / Nash with me, is into everything from CSNY to Meatloaf to Toby Keith to Cat Stevens to Queen...etc,etc.

I am currently blessed, and hopefully continue to be, that they haven't shown any inclination toward any of the rap or hip-hop crap that is all the rage with kids today!!

When my 9 year old daughter saw me looking at the forum this morning, she said " You said you were'nt going on there again." Indeed I sometimes say that but here I am again. She likes the Dead but being a computer freak, knows a lot of kid music she hears on youtube. However she does love running round the kitchen listening to Orbital and is familiar with the lyrics to Pyjama People.

My oldest turns 20 next month. Her musical tastes and interests are varied, but my influence apparently worked well – she loves the Beatles, Paul Simon (and S&G), Pink Floyd and even the boys. It is wonderful to be able send her cds of shows/albums and know that she appreciates them. Her sister (16) likes a lot of newer stuff that she shares with me - but as with her sister the Beatles are always at the top of the list. Funny when she talks about friends who haven't ever heard of the Beatles!

I recall a good friend dating a somewhat younger gal and when he found out she didn't know who Paul McCartney was, he fig'd he might as well end it then and there...this was almost 15 yrs ago, so she'd been born in the late 60s, but he thought it was a deal breaker...

Two wonderful kids...my son is 30 and enjoys Dylan, Neil Young, Bob Marley, Counting Crows, et al. Still trying to figure out the Dead and I bring him CDs of favorite concerts every time we visit. I figure all that early training will come in handy and one day he will get on the bus. He enjoys then but isn't obsessed. Haven't had time to figure out which concert to bring him for Thanksgiving, but Cliff's Top 20 List will certainly make that job easier. His wife always makes sure I have some kind of Dead present (stickers, watch, etc.) from my grandson every Christmas...very cool woman...and the world's cutest grandson!

My daughter is 27 and lives in Hawaii. She doesn't have strong musical tastes, but I still remember taking her and her best friend to a Backstreet Boys concert in Las Vegas when she was 14...one of the worst nights of my life. I knew then that I would truly do anything for my kids! I have given her copies of every Dead concert played in Hawaii. I may have frightened her with Pig's 35 minute plus "Lovelight", but a good father sacrifices for his children. I love her dearly, but she tolerates my obsession and feeds it if needed. A speech therapist in an elementary school whose husband is a firefighter.

I am truly blessed to have such wonderful kids. I miss them every day and am grateful beyond words that they have become responsible adults who know what it means to be of person of integrity. They are much better people at their age than I will ever be.

My oldest is 14 and hasn't shown an interest in going to concerts yet. He did block three of my shots yesterday in one-on-one, which was a new and disturbing trend. However i can still use my fat ass to back him down under the hoop for an easy two so he can't beat me......yet.
